About 75 percent of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases recorded this month are mild and moderate, a health official said Tuesday.

In an online media forum, Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire noted that only 13 percent of the cases are asymptomatic and 12 percent are severe and critical.

“Amin pong pinapaalala na maaring manatili po muna sa bahay ang mga mild cases, malaking tulong po ang pag-home isolate or quarantine para mabawasan po ang load sa ating (We’re reminding mild cases that they can stay at home for isolation or quarantine to lighten the load of our) healthcare workers and even our facilities,” she said.

She added that the Department of Health (DOH) will provide Kalinga Kits to individuals undergoing home isolation or home quarantine.

It includes 10 pieces of paracetamol, 10 pieces of vitamin C, 10 pieces of carbocisteine, 20 pieces of facemasks, two bars of soap, one alcogel, one disinfectant spray, and one tips sheet.

Asymptomatic or cases with mild to moderate symptoms can only undergo home isolation or home quarantine if they have a separate room from other family members, have a separate bathroom, and not living with senior citizens, young children, and individuals with comorbidities.

Meantime, individuals with severe symptoms are urged to go to the hospital for immediate treatment.

Below are the guidelines on the treatment of mild or moderate symptoms at home.

“Bagamat po mas mild ang Omicron variant, kapag hindi po maayos ang pagpapagaling sa bahay, maaari po itong magdulot ng problema sa ating (Although Omicron variant is milder than previous variants, improper home treatment can take a toll on our) mental health and physical health,” Vergeire said.

To help individuals who are under home quarantine or isolation manage stress, Vergeire recommended the use of DOH’s Lusog-Isip mobile self-care app which features techniques on the improvement one’s well-being. (PNA)
